2012 Guide Analysis: "Until Martin Scorsese's "Hugo" last year, only one filmmaker seemed to really understand and make 3D work for him on the big screen - James Cameron. When it comes to the technical aspects of filmmaking, he's really second to none which can be seen with the stunning remastering job he did for the Blu-ray release of "Aliens" (he also did a similar job for a Blu-ray of "The Abyss" but Fox hasn't set a release date for that yet).
Now comes his re-release of "Titanic" and once again he's done it right. Announced back in 2009, Cameron has taken his time with the project with the conversion process taking about a year to do as he had to be heavily involved "to make sure that the Stereo Space decisions are made correctly". While most 'conversion jobs' are pretty terrible, "Titanic" will be an interesting test of just how good the technique can be.
Cameron is also understanding of those who can't stand 3D either way, as a result pristine new 2D (regular and IMAX) versions have also been struck from a new 4K Master created in the conversion process and will also be available at the same time. The whole kit and caboodle is set to open just a few days shy of the 100th anniversary of the actual ship setting sail and could be one of the shining lights in the otherwise dull movie-going month of April."
